Damn Small Linux site hacked!

I was looking for an image on Google and one of the results just so happened to have been hosted on but it looks like the site was hacked! That was definitely a surprise to me.

Damn... that sucks the big one.

I like DSL too. . . too bad.

I wonder if the DSL webserver running DSL? From what I understand the httpd server on the DSL cd may not be that 'safe'. . .more of a temp solution if anything.

As posted in other thread, I notified the admin about his site. Thanks goodness for whois huh.

Had to be a bad password. Surely he runs Linux if he serves his own site.

edit: I corrected my bad typing, see below. If you have a problem with that, get a life, with the hacker I guess.

Defacing can be serious - especially if one turns on a blender in the script kiddies face. Sooner or later they gonna run into the wrong person, especially with their cowardish tendency to show off.

Then defacing won't be solved by a backup.

I read once where someone 'messed' with a person that deals with the DNS servers. That was shall we say a "bad idea". He sort of had problems getting his internet to work. It sort of come first hand too. I think he learned his lesson. I can't remember where I read that though. It was a good while back.

It was sort of funny though. Sort of puts things in perspective.

I just wish their keyboards would catch on fire and give their fingers a good cooking. Sort of slow them down a bit if they have to poke at the keyboard instead of type on it.
